This is a Critical Reading Club worksheet. With this format, students need to read an online article at home and do the exercises in the classroom. Learn more about how to use such worksheets and their benefits in our post.
At the beginning of the lesson, students briefly discuss if the issues mentioned in the article apply to the company they work for. After the warm-up, students read five statements regarding location-based pay and pay transparency. Their task is to first match the statements with the reasons behind them. Then, they need to make sure that they understand the expressions in bold in the statements (e.g. salary band, remuneration discrepancies). Next, students discuss which of the issues they agree with or relate to personally. Finally, they read four solutions to deal with location-based pay issues and put them in order of fairness for both the company and its employees.
